Egypt defender Ali Gabr could make his debut with his new club West Bromwich on Saturday when the Premier League side face Southampton in the fifth round of the FA Cup after receiving his work permit.
The 29-year-old joined West Bromwich in the January transfer window on loan from Zamalek until the end of the season with an option to make the deal permanent.
He joined compatriot Ahmed Hegazi, who has produced a string of superb displays with West Bromwich since joining from Cairo giants Ahly last summer.
West Bromwich are struggling in the Premier League this season. They lie at the bottom of the league table with 20 points from 27 games.
Gabr has made 18 international appearances since making his debut with Egypt in 2014. He was part of the Pharaohs side that reached the 2018 World Cup in Russia after a 28-year absence.
